Santa Flying Into Milton Tonight For Official Christmas Tree Lighting.
Santa has been able to take a break from his workshop to fly in and visit Milton this evening at 5:30pm. "I am looking forward to seeing all the good little boys and girls that live in Milton," Santa shared "I have heard that the new Christmas tree is as beautiful as those in the North Pole!"
The City of Milton will begin a special holiday tradition on Sunday, Nov. 29, at the city's inaugural Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. with a visit from Santa and carols sung by Hopewell Middle School students. At 6:00 p.m. sharp, the switch will be flipped to light up the branches of the beautiful 22-foot Deodar Cedar, a gift to the city from Protect Milton, Inc. Mayor Lockwood and members of the Milton City Council will be on hand to share in the celebration, which will take place at the corner of Highway 9 and Webb Road. Hot cocoa, coffee and cookies will be served, complements of Starbucks inside the Milton Target store.
"As we approach the anniversary of our city's incorporation, we are both grateful and proud of how far we've come in three short years," says Mayor Joe Lockwood. "This beautiful Christmas tree will light up the night through the holidays and serve as a lasting reminder of all we have to be thankful for." Lockwood continues, "I'm honored to share in the inaugural celebration of what is sure to become another beloved holiday tradition for our city."
